Such a rare find, a true treasure, this children's book The Life & Battles of Napoleon Bonaparte {in words of ONE syllable} written for children by Mrs. Helen W. Pierson, with the most glorious full color cover, 82 etchings by Edwin Forbes throughout the book, 13 of them full page.  Printed by McLoughlin Brothers of New York, in 1887.  158 pages, as this was a children's book, there is wear, the book is loose on the front as shown, though the pages are firmly attached inside. This is something you can fix, although I tend to love this with all the wear shown. 

Imagine receiving this on a Victorian Christmas morning, a young boy would adore this and read it many times from cover to cover!  Perfect for your collection of Victorian Children's Books, if you are a collector of all things to do with French history, military or battles, or just love adding unusual books to your library.  Napoleon lovers will cherish this extremely rare to find book as well. A wonderful luxurious gift for someone you love.  Measures 8~7/8" x 7~1/4".  Condition as shown, please only purchase this if you love this as is like I do!
